Metallic variant of Exodia the Forbidden One from Yu-Gi-Oh!

 

Do you know what the deal is with a metallic variant?  Was is a chase figure in regular packaging or an exclusive figure in some other package type, or something else?

 It's basically neither, it's filler to pad out the line with a variation and save money on paint applications because it doesn't have to go for accuracy. I forget if Bandai, I think they did the toys back then, was selling metallic figures as parts of multi-packs or just as alternate single releases, but they wouldn't have been packed in chase ratios and they definitely weren't blind-boxed but carded and visible.

Yeah I just meant *chase* in the sense that some packs would have the regular figure and some would be shortpacked with a *chase* variant, not that any were blind-packed.

 

Judging by this picture, I am thinking that the metallic variant came in a 3-pack, while the regular version probably came in a single pack.

Exodia, and the white horned skeleton dude were the only Yugioh figures I ever really got into. Exodia is pretty freaking sweet.

I knew what you meant by being a chase figure Steve, my point was that it was about as common, if not more, than the standard painted version. Which being a multi-pack figure more or less confirms.

 

You must mean Summoned Skull, and yeah he's pretty damn cool. Really, the series was in general for the cool designs and the goofy way it dramatically played up a children's trading card game, like DBZ if all the protracted fights were with cards instead of power levels and ki attacks.
